"Blues EP"
Tolga Baklacioglu
Release Date: 29 Mar 2010

Blues EP takes blues influenced samples and combines them with house, tech-house and minimal. Coming from Turkey - where East meets West makes Tolga Baklacioglu the right man for the job of fusion. His background of Blues trumpet shines through here as does his love of electronic music and various club residencies around Turkey.

I Blues is looped up, funky and comfortably trippy. It's a fantasticly solid club track with enough interest for the head nodders in the house.

You Blues is even more groovy, less loopy and maybe a little more melodic. There's a real smooth richness to the production and infectious swing to the syncopation. The subtle breaks thrown in here and there give the track a real nice old school feel.

dub KULT was taken aback by the wealth of material sent to him for the remix of You Blues. Barely using a quarter of the samples or stems the result is a stripped down, dare I say it, minimalistic affair with both feet firmly on the dancefloor. The traditional filtered keys are nicely chopped up into an abstract melody to compliment the tightly groovy beat. The vocal stabs jump out of the mix in a mind interrupting way resulting in a moment of thoughtless expansion in their wake. Well, it does if you listen to it right.
